Jam Handy could take dull subjects and make 'em fun, so an interesting subject like forest fires simply leads to an excellent film.

Subject: Another Great Jam Handy Film
I really enjoyed watching this film, Although it lacks some of the things which make other Jam Handy films so much fun. 5/5.

Subject: Burn baby burn!
Rather interesting cliffhanger sort of Jam Handy short to show how a careless cigarette can ignite what appears to be the FASTEST spreading fire in history. After a fisherman casually throws his butt away, a fire grows. We are shown how the communications are done to get people down there right away and put out the fire (very primitively). Meanwhile, a man who lives in the forest (so he must have a french canadian accent) races to rescue his bed ridden wife. Will he get there in time? Will the people trying to put out the fire get there in time in their (of course) Chevrolet vehicles? Will we get to see a Chevrolet vehicle burn?

What do you think? Anyways, it's quite gripping and highly reccomended!
